I miss English Weather.

It rained in Fort Worth today and it actually made me realize that I actually miss English weather. Till I moved to Texas, I didn't realize it was possible to be hot and uncomfortable in a rain storm. In England, when it rains, any humidity there is breaks, the temperature drops, and it actually feels pleasant.
